Your inexperience is showing thru.


Cutting 4' tall, in the rain might happen.

But when you throw bagging into it.......... then it becomes a joke.

You need a brush hog not a lawnmower... you can rent one if you only have one time to cut.

So you want to buy a mower just to cut 4' grass in the rain. For one get a bush hog. And for two why are you only cutting grass in the rain??

But that aint working real well in the rain either.

Cutting 4' grass in the rains turns your X Mark into a cole slaw maker.

You can cut 4 ft of grass and you can bag it but you won't be doing both at the same time with any machine...especially with a riding lawn mower
